Shocked Crying or Very sad

Tinio explained that the bill is in line with their party’s program, which is to make the salaries of educators into almost a living wage.

Agreed. Hard to expect decent salaries when the country still hasn't even adopted the global K-12 standard as of yet.

Why don't they have the K-12?
I was surprised when I first heard that college/university begins when they are about 16 years old. When I see the high school kids I just think to myself they are in middle school and with college/university they are in high school.
